Everything you need to know about IUDs

Everything you need to know about IUDs

An intrauterine device (IUD) is a T-shaped device placed in the uterus to prevent sperm from reaching the egg. They are over 99% effective, making them the most effective contraceptive method out there compared to the pill, condoms, and others.

With a pill, or other forms of contraceptives, there’s a huge margin of error because you might forget to take it or use it incorrectly. With an IUD, on the other hand, you can just set it and forget it.

Leave it alone!: 3 tips to clean your vagina the healthy way

Your vagina works hard for you and sometimes it needs to breathe. Things like scrubbing your vagina with soap and shaving every single day is not only annoying for you, but potentially unhealthy for your vulva and vagina!

Remember, your vagina is your BFF. How would you treat them after a hard day’s work?

We’re not saying you can’t shave or wash down there every day. You can even stay unshaven! We’re simply saying to take a moment to consider whether you’re promoting your vaginal health or not.

How to get out of a quarantine sex slump

How to get out of a quarantine sex slump

Feel like your sex life’s been a bit lacking lately (if not outright nonexistent)? Yeah, that’s kind of a thing right now. 

In a survey by the app Mentimeter and relationship therapist Vienna Pharaon, 36% of people in the U.S. and Europe said the spark between them and their partners has dwindled since quarantine, and 41% were having less sex. 

Anyone else surprised those numbers aren’t higher?

The reason this is happening is fairly simple: People’s libidos drop when they’re under stress, says MFT and sex therapist Indigo Stray Conger, LMFT, CST.

Long term relationships and female libido

Long term relationships and female libido

It may not be a surprise to some women, but a new study that came out just last year shows that the longer a woman is in a committed long term relationship, the more likely it is that her libido will decrease.

The study concluded that women need variety and novelty in their sexual experiences to stay interested.

This article condenses research on the nature of female desire in long-term heterosexual relationships. 

How my menstrual cycle affects my orgasms

How my menstrual cycle affects my orgasms

Some days, it only takes a coy smile and a light breeze to arouse me. Other days, it takes a village of pornerotica, lube, extra foreplay, and a hard-working partner for me to even get there.

I used to think these urges were completely random — until I started tracking my cycle and learning about my hormones.

When I talk about the “menstrual cycle,” I’m not just talking about Shark Week. The menstrual cycle actually refers to the 21-35 day cycle that makes ovulation and menstruation possible.

Using a popular cycle-tracking app called Clue and my trusty Lioness Vibrator, I found out how all the different parts of my menstrual cycle influence my orgasms.

Balancing body positivity and exercise for better orgasms

Balancing body positivity and exercise for better orgasms

I could list off all the benefits of exercising, but here’s one of the biggest motivators: research has shown that exercise can improve your orgasms and sexual activity. 

Aerobic exercise improves oxygen and blood flow throughout the body, which can mean long-lasting erections for people with penises and higher clitoral sensitivity for people with vaginas. 

Plus, working out can boost body positivity and make you feel more confident and present in your body.
